Margot Martini: Parents of girl with rare cancer launch donor appeal

The parents of a one year-old girl from Staffordshire have made an internet appeal to find a bone marrow donor for their daughter who has a rare form of leukaemia.

The couple, from Essington, made the appeal after Margot Martini was diagnosed with two types of leukaemia in October.

She needed an immediate blood transfusion and spent 10 days on life support.

The video campaign has had nearly 47,000 views while 12,000 people have requested a swab pack from charity Delete Blood Cancer in order to sign-up up to the stem-cell register.
